美财长将在G20上提及加密货币监管问题

美国财政部长史蒂芬·姆钦表示,他计划在3月于阿根廷举办的20国集团(G20)峰会期间提出关于加密货币监管的议题。

据NHK报道,周二,史蒂芬·姆钦在参议院银行委员会会上发表讲话时表示,他认为加密货币不会对金融市场的稳定性构成“威胁”,不过他还是对利用加密货币进行洗钱和其他非法活动感到担忧。

其实,这次G20峰会已经不是第一个讨论这个问题的全球性峰会了。关于加密货币监管问题早在2015年的G7首脑会谈上就探讨过。

然而这一次,除了美国财长之外,法国财政部长布鲁诺·勒梅尔在12月份也谈及了类似的提议。当时,他将市场投机的风险列为首要担忧因素。

不过,史蒂芬·姆钦在几周前表示,美国金融监管机构正在组建一个加密货币工作组,旨在调查研究这个新兴市场。

美国财政部还将在2018年2月6号举行一场关于加密货币与美证交会、美商品期货交易委员会所处关系的听证会。美国证交会主席杰伊·克莱顿和美国商品期货交易委员会主席詹卡洛将出席。

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has indicated he is planning to raise the subject of cryptocurrency regulation during an upcoming G20 summit to be held in Argentina in March.

Speaking at the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday, Mnuchin said that he does not believe cryptocurrencies are threat to the financial market stability, though he is concerned about their use in money laundering and other illegal activities, NHK reports.

If held, the talks notably wouldn't mark the first time that a major global summit saw such dialogue, with a meeting of the G7 nations – a group comprised of the world's largest economies – having discussed the matter as far back as 2015.

This time around, however, Mnuchin is not alone in seeking the dialogue, as French finance minister Bruno Le Maire put out a similar call in December for such talks to coincide with the meeting. At the time, he cited the risk of market speculation as a top concern.

Still, Mnuchin's plan comes weeks after he stated that U.S. finance regulators are forming a digital currency working group, one that would aim to investigate the nascent market.

"We are very focused on cryptocurrencies," he stated, adding that it is the job of regulators to ensure it is not misused or abused.

The U.S. Treasury is also holding a hearing on virtual currencies and the role of U.S Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) on 6th February. This "open session" will be witnessed by Jay Clayton, chairman of the SEC, and J. Christopher Giancarlo, chairman of the CFTC.
